Guest Speaker - W. Gyude Moore, Visiting Fellow, Center for Global Development
W. Gyude Moore, former Minister of Public Works and Deputy Chief of Staff to Her Excellency President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, (Liberia) is currently a visiting fellow at the Center for Global Development. As Head of the PDU, Moore led a team that monitored progress on the delivery of the Public Sector Investment Program of Liberia. PDU monitored and drove delivery, on behalf of the President, for over $1 billion in road, power, and port infrastructure investment as Liberia attempted to rebuild after the civil war. As one of the President’s most trusted advisors, Gyude also played a crucial role in supporting President Sirleaf as Liberia shaped its post-Ebola outlook. At this dinner, Gyude will share with us his experience in Liberian civil service and his knowledge of private finance for African infrastructure.
